Just popping in to note that my review of Brendan Koerner's The Skies Belong To Us is now up at the national. Spoiler: I liked it.
Thanks to everyone who said nice things about the blog downpage. I didn't mean to give the impression I was nuking it for good. I just needed a break, fairly badly. The idea is that I'll be back when I really can't stop myself writing something, which was the way it used to be. Since there are even more gobsmacking things happening in China right now than normal, that may be sooner than anticipated.
Anyway, thanks again. And if anyone with posting privileges here has something to add, help yourselves.
